With the new cam, and good track prep, with the progressive controller I just installed and some suspension work, I SHOULD go 9.9s to 10.1x at about 135-137. I have tweaked converter lockup too for the gas, as in locking in 3rd and 4th.

Most cammed L99s with gas wont see past mid-high 10s on avg though.

Cut a 1.4 60' and you're there. With that low of a mph your only shot at that low of an ET is leaving like a mofo.

What did you do for suspension?

He's already running 10.8x without the giggle juice. I can't see how a 150 shot doesn't get him at least .6 more.

Not Rhino. Some other dude who obviously has no clue how difficult it is to run a 10.2 in a 4k lb car.


I wouldn't put anything past Rhino.

This is the only reason why I thought that yes it is possible, Bc if rhinos set up gets traction he will easily hit 10.2!
But there aren't Rhino cars out there everywhere! Which is why I said it's very unlikely to happen. 10.50-10.90 is more likely unless this guys cammed car is already running 11.20's?
And if he is, where is his name on the Fast List?

Truth is any guy can take a cammed car, and spout off that he's gonna add nitrous in hopes of being this monster! But there are cammed Camaros that are barely running 11's. hard to say which one he is?

Very true. If he can go that's fast that's awesome but the reality is he probably won't. Again, if it was that easy why aren't there more gen v's going that fast?

Yep agree!! It ain't as easy as buying some parts, and boom your fast! I've seen 2 different ZL1's run mid 12's!
1 Mustang Cobra run 12.9, then finally got down to 12.3
And 2 cammed Camaros running low 12's

And I'm sure when they bought there stuff they had high hopes of running 11.0x's!

Mo to it than that!

10.2-3 is awfully fast. I'm adding the SC and going to run meth, I'm looking for 10.3-.4 with all the stuff i've got. I had nitrous (100 shot) and best i could do was 11.4 with a 1.73 60' @ 124. Granted my tune had a lot left in it, but a full second with a +50 on the shot seems to be a little to generous of an increase over what I experienced.

i ran 11.3 at 130's (cant remember the mph off the top of my head) with 1.9 60'. on a slowly progressed 125 shot on factory p zeros . the da that day was 1600 to 2000 what time i was there.
i am pretty sure i can cut off a big chunk of that with a dr. and skinneys thats gonna come down abit. thats with a very safe tune. plus was not spraying till i was in 3rd. clutch wouldnt hold.
im gonna hope for a good 10.5 to 10.7 once all is lined out. but on a good pass with weather it should go faster. i think with a 150 shot i can get 135 or so on mph.
